And just how does one do that on a radio that has the ALC level fixed in the 
firmware and controlled by DSP?  This isn't like a Kenmore that has a 
"carrier level" control on the front panel.  There is no menu setting to 
control it either.  The ALC light blinks on CW at all power levels settings 
from 1 to 100.

The good news is that since the ALC control is so tight and consistent, 
there is no need for the traditional ALC loop from an external amplifier to 
the exciter (if anyone ever used that--I never did)...just turn down the 
power control.
